gave us an informal fashion show. and don't worry, guys -- she included some tips for you, as well. this is lizzy, and lizzy is dressed a little bit too conservatively, a little too serious, old for her age. you know, it's a full suit. it doesn't really seem like it's young and fresh and doesn't show any of her personality. so now lizzy is dressed with a blazer, but she's doing it as a "do." this is actually a blazer from the kids' department, which is a great way to get a cute fit that looks young and fresh, but it's still professional, so we thought it looked great over this bright-colored dress. lizzy's dress is actually strapless, which isn't appropriate for the office, but when she leaves work, and maybe she's meeting friends, she can take off the jacket, and she still looks really great. altogether, i think she looks appropriate for her first day at an internship. this is lauren, and lauren's "don't" is a too-short skirt. she almost looks inappropriate for the beach. she has flip-flops on, a tank top, and it's a bit too casual. it doesn't look professional. she doesn't look l

's argument had "injured us more, and has been as great a barrier to our emancipation as any thing that has ever been advanced against us," for it had " sunk deep into the hearts of millions of the whites, and never will be removed this side of eternity." so, the ideal of equality jefferson proclaimed, he also betrayed. he got it right when he wrote about "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." as the core of our human aspirations. but he lived it wrong, denying to others the rights he claimed for himself. and that's how jefferson came to embody the oldest and longest war of all -- the war between the self and the truth, between what we know and how we live. so enjoy the fireworks and flags, the barbecues and bargain sales. but hold this thought as well -- that behind this fourth of july holiday are human beings who were as flawed and conflicted as they were inspired. if they were to look upon us today they most likely would think as they did then, how much remains to be done. with those contradictions of american history in mind, this seemed a good time to talk with khalil gibran muh

and gloom on all sides. tell us more about economists and what they are really saying. >> the report was commissioned by an american think tank, financed largely by the very controversial hedge fund manager george soros, it is hardly surprising that the report is critical of the new crisis management. the most surprising thing is the extent to which it agrees with angela merkel. for example, in opposing the introduction of eurobonds and also in warning against the european union becoming a transfer union. >> what is the german government's expected response? >> i do not think the german government will react directly to this. the ideas are not new. they belong to mainstream american economic thinking. chancellor merkel is aware of them, of course, and is not convinced by them. far more important is the possible influence of moody's, warning that germany could lose its aaa rating because of its exposure to weak southern european economies. that will strengthen chancellor merkel's resolve not to give any more cash to greasece until it elements reforms. i think there's probably secretly
